Eclipsis and Lenition

Does anyone know when to use eclipsis and when to use lenition? Are they used in different scenarios or are they interchangeable?

March 28, 2015



There is only one case where they could possibly be considered interchangeable, and even then they're limited by dialect, and not in free variation. I suggest you read the tips and notes on the browser, or read through this page to get a sense of when to use them.


Thanks for the help.
